SO, the question is, what do I make first for a cold and snowy day? Something that will fill the house with warmth and delicious smells?
Ingredients on hand include stew meat, ground chuck, chicken, roast, onions, garlic (of course), potatoes, carrots and a cabinet full of herbs and spices. Plus, I always have lots of broth, diced tomatoes (paste and sauce too), picante sauce and Tabasco and beans galore. I checked the herbs still alive in my pots and if I can dig the snow off them tomorrow, I'll have fresh basil, parsley and thyme.
Feel free to send suggestions - and I'll let you know how it turns out!
